Matching strings with a dictionary built from a flat file

19 New Member
Hello again,

I am still working on my same project and have run into another little problem. I have created a flat file with data from a server, each line looks like this:

BLAT Search Results
browser details Musmusculuslet-7g 21 1 21 21 100.0% 22 + 46884872 46884892 21
browser details Musmusculuslet-7i 21 1 21 21 100.0% 5 + 50605174 50605194 21

My original input looked like this:

>Musmusculusl et-7g
>Musmusculusl et-7i

As you can see, the original RNA codes were deleted in the reply. Also, my replies are sorted differently and have multiple matches in some cases, so I want to create a library that has all of my matches, and then feed in the above file and add the RNA codes whenever it finds the matching Musmusculus statements. I have the following code, but it just matches an exact string:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DictionaryMaker ( filename ):
  2.     dict = {}
  3.     for i in dict.keys(practice):
  4.     if  i == string:
  5.         print 'Yes there is a match!'
  6.         string = string + ' ' + practice[i]
I also need to read in the data I have for the dictionary somehow to build my dictionary from my flat file. The key should be '>Musmusculusle t-7g' and the value 'UGAGGUAGUAGUUU GUACAGU' from above. Is there an easy way to read this in from a file containing all of these sequences?

Any help would be appreciated!

Catching up on what's new in Python since I last used it a decade ago, I've just been reading up on template strings. These are pretty cool! However, just as a template string has some advantages over % substitution for building a string, it seems like it would have advantages over manually constructing a regex for string matching. So......

It wouldn't be too hard to write this for myself, but it seems like the sort of thing Python ought to have built in. Right on the Template class, so it doesn't add anything new to the global namespace; it just makes this class more useful.
